Samsung, however, said it isn't just about size and insane resolutions, but its new TV is also about technological innovations that can well redefine the entire TV segment as a whole. It is a self-emitting TC micrometre (µm) scale LEDs - which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light. The Wall is a modular 146-inch television set that uses MicroLED technology to illuminate picture and video. Key performance qualities of MicroLED displays are their light source lifetime, power consumption, and luminous efficiency (up to 2000 nits). Samsung has now announced its new AI technology which will be integrated into its 85 inch 8k QLED TV.

"As the world's first consumer modular MicroLED television, 'The Wall" represents another breakthrough, ' Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said yesterday.

Samsung's 146-inch TV, aptly named The Wall, was created using new MicroLED technology designed to rival OLED TVs from LG and Sony, and will be launched later this year.

We're excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology.

In form, The Wall features a module-based, bezel-less design, enabling consumers to customise their television sizes and shapes to suit their needs, able to adapt to serve different purposes, such as creating a wall-size display for multiple spaces. Samsung claims, "The Q9S incorporates AI technology to deliver clear and pristine 8K resolution for any type of content".

With a name like "The Wall", you expect Samsung's new 146-inch home cinema display to be big and imposing.

This 8K solution maximizes the viewing experience through several new features. "Or, if viewing a concert, the low-frequency sounds of the music might be highlighted to deliver a richer sound", the company said. That's just the beginning of what we can expect from Samsung smart TVs in 2018.

Amongst the slew of giant screens, all Ultra-HD and usually HDR or Dolby Vision-equipped, few expected South Korean electronics giant Samsung to do much at CES 2018 that was truly spectacular. This year will further see the launch of Universal Guide that can readily recommend TV programs as per user preference. These areas gave guests at First Look 2018 the chance to get hands-on Samsung's most exciting innovations in TV.

In case you missed it (and a lot of folks did), Samsung introduced a massive 34-foot cinema display a few months ago meant to replace projectors and screens in commercial theaters.
